metering

I have been going back thru my camera manual for my D850 and just getting back to the fundamentals with it.  I came across metering and doing a little bit of research on the different metering modes.  I even tried out the highlight weighted metering at the basketball game on Saturday.  The ribbon boards and the front panel at the scorekeepers table is always causing some crazy lighting.

So with this I am curious to know when and why you use the different metering modes from spot metering to center weighted metering.   I know what the book says but more curious to know how much and how people use the different metering modes.
